Mary Richards, KSL NewsradioIt's not a belief that's endorsed by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and yet some people believe that if Mitt Romney is elected president, he's destined to do a great thing.

There's growing talk Mitt Romney could be the one to fulfill a so-called prophecy and save the U.S. Constitution. Mormon myth claims Joseph Smith prophesied that in the last days the constitution would hang by a thread and a Mormon on a metaphorical white horse would ride in to save it.

The LDS Church in the past has discounted this "White Horse Prophecy," saying it is not doctrine. Romney told the Salt Lake Tribune he doesn't believe it, either.
